NFP has appointed Lesley Munk to the role of senior vice president, associate general counsel for the broker’s Canadian operations.
As part of the company’s executive team, Munk will work closely with NFP’s business leaders in Canada on all transactions and acquisitions, while working to mitigate risk and maximize opportunities within the firm’s diversified business, a release said.
In addition to her responsibilities, Munk will also partner with NFP’s corporate leadership on tactical legal and regulatory initiatives focused on Canada. She will report to NFP executive vice president, general counsel Evan Michael.
Munk joins NFP from RSA Canada, where she spent the last nine years in several legal roles – most recently as vice president, legal and general counsel. Before serving RSA Canada, she practiced law in the corporate department of a Toronto-based law firm, focusing on M&A, private equity, and financial services transactions. Munk has over 18 years of legal experience.
Munk received her Bachelor of Laws (LL.B.) from Osgoode Hall Law School at York University and her Bachelor of Arts from Huron University College at the University of Western Ontario.
“We are delighted to add Lesley to the team and have her spearhead our legal efforts in Canada,” said Evan Michael. “She possesses the qualities we embrace at NFP — exemplary experience and integrity, specialized expertise, and a focus on client service — and will be an excellent partner in our ongoing growth in Canada.”
